Auburn Reed has her entire life mapped out. Her goals are in sight and there’s no room for mistakes. But when she walks into a Dallas art studio in search of a job, she doesn’t expect to find a deep attraction to the enigmatic artist who works there, Owen Gentry.

For once, Auburn takes a risk and puts her heart in control, only to discover Owen is keeping major secrets from coming out. The magnitude of his past threatens to destroy everything important to Auburn, and the only way to get her life back on track is to cut Owen out of it.

The last thing Owen wants is to lose Auburn, but he can’t seem to convince her that truth is sometimes as subjective as art. All he would have to do to save their relationship is confess. But in this case, the confession could be much more destructive than the actual sin…

Colleen Hoover Does It Again! Have yet to read a book by Colleen Hoover that I didn’t like.  Every time I read a book by her I understand more and more the hype around her books. Confess was such a good book. A great story, great characters and so many feels. This is my second book from this very talented lady and let me tell you it did not disappoint. Let’s first start off by saying that I went into this book completely blind. When I say completely I mean I only knew Colleen Hoover is the author. And I truly believe this is the best way to go into this book. I think the mystery of not knowing and the excitement of reading and finding is the most amazing thing about this book. Keeping that in mind, I’m kind of scared of doing this review without spoiling anything but I promise I will try my very, very best.

The best thing about this story for me was THE CHARACTERS! In my opinion Auburn and Owen are just amazing characters. They are so well-written and complex. I loved Auburn’s personality and the things we discover about her. She is an independent, strong and dedicated woman who is working so hard for the things she cares about. I loved that she felt so real to me, to a point where I could say I admired her. And Owen! OMG! I loved Owen so much, like you guys have no idea. He is such an amazing character and so complex. First off he is an artist and an amazing one at that. He is also an amazing romantic interest. The thing I loved most about Owen is that he was always so sure of his feelings for Auburn. He was confident and secure in his intentions towards her and he felt worthy of being with her. I loved this simply because I’m so tired of always seeing how the romantic interest doesn’t feel worthy of being with the other person and all that whiny nonsense. LIKE FOR GOD’S SAKE JUST BE PROUD OF YOURSELF FOR ONCE. And Owen was always so CONFIDENT! I just loved that so much. And the connection between this two characters was just so real and so amazing. Bless you Colleen Hoover and your wonderful mind!

Another aspect was the story. Like I said I went into this completely blind so everything for me was a surprise. Right from the start the feels hit me so hard. The scenes in this book are so amazing and so beautifully written I couldn’t have enough. And probably the best/ most unique part of this book—THE ART. I can’t say enough how much I loved the art in this book. It was amazing to be able to read the book and see the works of art they are talking about. And the concept behind the confessions and the art it was just so beautiful, captivating and by far one of the most creative idea’s I’ve read about.

AMAZING BOOK! TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE.

  • Oh yeah, her books are definitely worth the hype. I loved the art too. Actually, I love that she has also used different forms of art in some of her books (poetry and music).

  • This book is soooo amazing! And it totally surprised me because when I read this book I didn’t expect to like it as much as Ugly Love, which I had read close to Confess. So glad you loved it and the art was so beautiful!

  • Awesome review, Gaby! I loved this one so much. I’ve decided that CoHo just can’t go wrong. I love Auburn and Owen (OMG!). Auburn’s willingness to sacrifice made me love her even more. And Owen… what a sweetheart. He, too, was willing to sacrifice… in different ways, for different reasons. But they were so perfect together. The connections in the book were amazing and that last chapter. Oh my heart! And anyone who can have me crying in the prologue… amazing. ♥
